Cookies, Cats and Winning BabiesCasey Mullins
Hey guys, Vivi here. Remember when I was all “HEY SISTER! PAY ATTENTION TO MEEEE!” earlier? Well it turns out that the cats have a bit of an advantage on me in that they can walk themselves to the front door as soon as she gets home from school. I’m pretty wicked at rolling, but those cats are going to get me when it comes to speed every time. So I started to think “What do I have that those cats don’t? HOW CAN I WIN?”
Opposable thumbs and a face no one can say no to.
I’m pleased to report at the end of the day the score stands at Cats: 0 Me: 1
You see, my sister, she loves cookies more than she loves sunshine, Taylor Swift and puppies. So while I was at the grocery store today with my mom I convinced her that I would be irresistible to Addie if she walked in to me with a plateful of cookies and a smile on my face. Let’s see a cat do that.
Now I’m well aware my mom is a busy lady, and she’s also kind of picky about her cookies. The day she buys generic treats is the day she suddenly decides that it’s fine for me to chew on electrical cords. The cats tried to convince me that she wouldn’t have time to produce a plate of warm cookies before Addie got home in half an hour — but little did they know …

Casey here. Vivi and I made Addie Pillsbury Simply…® Chocolate Chip cookies. It’s refrigerated cookie dough already pre-portioned into 12 perfect cookies. All you have to do is heat up the oven, place them on a cookie sheet and bake. Even better? There’s no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives and no high fructose corn syrup. Pillsbury’s Simply…® line is also available in peanut butter cookies, buttermilk biscuits and french bread. Do-it-all parents deserve a delicious shortcut now and again.
I used to have this fantasy before I had kids about being a stay at home mom and having my kids come home from school to a plate full of warm cookies. Today my little fantasy got even better because my big kid got to come home to not only a plate full of warm cookies, but to armfuls of warm baby sister.
‘Tis a lovely life.
